YoYoGames Announces GameMaker on Steam

This is some big news. YoYoGames is now distributing GameMaker Studio on Steam.

Apparently, this also will enable GameMaker developers who use Steam to release their games directly on Steam in the future. I have to look into this; I’ve been wanting to find a way to get games into the market for a while now. This might make it a whole lot easier

Update: It is possible to distribute games via Steam, through the Steam Workshop, but not for money. Sadface. :(

Come on, YoYoGames/Valve, let people who create content with your tools derive income from that content! It will incentivize content creation! It’s a bit strange to be selling a $500 professional software development suite to game developers and then make it more difficult than it needs to be to generate income with it.
